Report from Tamer Visit

Today we had the opportunity to visit our friends from Tamer Institute at their head office in Ramallah. But to see the award winning work of tamer, you can’t stay there, you must travel and meet the grassroots volunteers of the organisation- who work tirelessly to promote reading on the West Bank, in refugee camps like Balata and Askar and in cities like Ramallah and Nablus alike.

So this is what we did. With Renad Qubbaj, director of the institute, as our guide, we made a tour and throughout the day we met so many inspiring librarians and teachers, who under very difficult circumstances still manage to install hope in the children.

Tamer just finished the national reading campaign, a yearly event which reaches more than 40000 children. This year the illustration from the ALMA diploma by Swedish illustrator Anna Bengtsson was chosen as the motif of the poster for the campaign!
